Watching Hulu through Roku Acct.

Jump to solution

Is it possible to watch Hulu on my PC through my Roku account without the Roku device. My TV has the Roku device attached. My wife and daughter use that to watch their shows. I watch Roku shows through my Account on my PC. So far I have been unable to find a way for me to watch Hulu. Is it even possible? Thanks.

Hi @mox575,

Thanks for reaching out to the Roku community! 

For more information about that channel's account authentication functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

You can reach Hulu support here: https://help.hulu.com/s/?language=en_US 

Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!

Regards,
Mary

Do you mean in a web browser on a PC pointed to therokuchannel.com and watch Hulu?  I don't think so.  Is that what you meant?

Just curious, on your PC, you could just point your browser to hulu.com and log in and watch.  Maybe have two browser tabs, one logged in to therokuchannel.com and the other logged in to hulu.com, both logged in.  Also, you could make shortcuts on your PC desktop for each.  Not what you were looking for? 

Pretty sure therokuchannel.com only lets you watch, well, The Roku Channel in your browser on your PC.  Not Hulu or any other channel.  Is that what you were asking?

Depends on how you subscribed to Hulu.  If you subscribed through Roku you'll only be able to watch on the Roku.  If you subscribed directly with Hulu on their website you can log into hulu.com in a browser on your computer to watch it, or on any device which has a Hulu app.
